Highlights

  • We celebrated Youth Sunday in collaboration with teens in May 2023. Children led the processions, lessons and prayers. 2 High School Seniors offered the sermon.

  • We delivered approximately 15 Children's Sermons and hosted a combination of 15 sessions of Sacred Sacristy and Children's Chapels where children sang songs, prayed with one another, and learned through contributing in a small group.

Insights

  • More High School-aged teens are the helping and supporting our children grow in their faith through acolyting and candle-lighting and snuffing, activities in our PrayGrounds, Sacred Sacristies, and Children's Chapels, the Easter Egg Hunt and Christmas Pageant preparations.

  • We hope to offer more service opportunities for families with young children.

  • Future Community Nights can be Family Nights.
